The national coverage of the Wake County school system's move away from busing for diversity is escalating.
NBC's "Today Show" did a live shot from a Wake school this morning. Also today, the Los Angeles Times covered Tuesday's vote in favor of neighborhood schools.
The Christian Science Monitor covered the story yesterday. You may also see coverage soon in the Economist, which had a writer at the board meeting.
Throw in all the media coverage from the Associated Press story on Tuesday that's running on newspaper, television and radio web sites all across the nation. In many cases, the AP story is accompanied by photos of the protesters being removed from the school board meeting by Raleigh police.
Don't forget the recent Sunday New York Times article and the mention in Newsweek.
The general theme of these national stories is of whether schools are resegregating across the country. A lot of places are following up on how school resegregation was named the top underreported news story in 2009 by Time magazine.
Changed the link for the LA Times article in case you want to leave comments there.

"The (diversity) policy angered many afflluent parents who wanted their children in the best suburban schools, not bused to an urban school in poor neighborhoods," according to the Today Show story.
